  • Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science

    Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science

    Science may be the biggest threat to teenage faith today, but Andrew Root demonstrates that, in fact, the two are not incompatible. Root, a renowned expert on adolescent spirituality, shows how science overstates its claims on truth, while faith often understates its own claims. Both faith and science frame the experience and reality of teenagers, and both have something valuable to offer as adolescents develop. Drawing on a fictional account of a youth pastor and the various students he encounters, Root paints a compelling picture of how faith can flourish, even in our scientific age.

  • "After Ten Years": Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Our Times

    How does one read the signs of the times? What does it mean to resist? How do we engage faithfully in struggle? Dietrich Bonhoeffer has achieved iconic status as one who epitomizes what it means to struggle and resist tyranny and fascism and how one acts in faithful witness as a religious and political commitment. Bonhoeffer’s witness and example is more relevant than ever. A testimony to that is a crucial essay penned by Bonhoeffer in 1942; “After Ten Years” is a succinct and sober reflection, and remains one of the best descriptions ever written about what happened to the German people under National Socialism. This volume presents this timely and unique essay in a fresh translation and a penetrating introduction and analysis of the importance of this essay—in Bonhoeffer’s time and now in our own.

  • Scapegoats: The Gospel through the Eyes of Victims

    Scapegoats: The Gospel through the Eyes of Victims

    Christians today tend to read the New Testament as victors, not as victims. The Gospels then become one story about individual salvation rather than distinct representations of Jesus's revolutionary work on behalf of victims. Scapegoats revisits the Gospels through the lens of the scapegoats' stories where the kingdom of God is revealed.

    The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to God: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know about the Almighty

    In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives. The classical conception of God is like the famously stoic-yet-lethal Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid. Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.
